Frans Mlambo returns at Brave 9 to face Michael Deiga-Scheck

Brave CF announced today that Ireland’s Frans Mlambo will take on Michael Deiga-Scheck at Brave 9 on 17th November 2017 in Bahrain.

[Press Release] After a successful run as an amateur Mixed Martial Artist, including a world championship title, Straight Blast Gym’s Frans Mlambo will be part of a high caliber amateur competition again. This time, though, Mlambo will join Brave 9: The Kingdom of Champions fight card, which will take place during Brave International Combat Week, alongside the 2017 IMMAF World Championships in Bahrain.

Brave CF officials announced this Wednesday that Mlambo, who represents both South Africa and Ireland inside the cage, will face another fighter carrying two flags: Michael Deiga-Scheck, born in Brazil but with German nationality.

Mlambo and Deiga-Sheck took part in the same card in their last appearances inside Brave cage. It was in Abu Dhabi, during Brave 4: Unstoppable, with each one of them facing different outcomes.

While Mlambo clinched his first Brave win with a late submission over Jalal Al Daaja, Deiga-Scheck got defeated by Abdul Kareem Al-Selwady. However, the German-Brazilian was a last-minute replacement and fought two division over his natural weight, competing as a Lightweight in the occasion. Now Deiga-Scheck is back to the bantamweight to face one of the biggest prospects inside Brave’s roster.

Brave 9: The Kingdom of Champions marks the promotion’s return to the Kingdom of Bahrain after a year spent expanding its operations and putting on groundbreaking events in countries such as Brazil (twice), Mexico, India, Kazakhstan and the United Arab Emirates. Brave 9 will be the culmination of the International Combat Week, alongside the IMMAF World Championships, under the patronage of His Highness Sheikh Nasser bin Hamad Al Khalifa.
